CHEMICAL REACTIONS
The reaction in which a chemical substance transforms into another new chemical substance is known as a chemical reaction.
A chemical change involves the formation of new substances whereas a physical change involves a change in colour or state and no new substances are formed.
Accordingly, the reactions are classified in different types:
1. Combination reaction or synthesis reaction
2. Decomposition reaction/Analysis reaction
3. Displacement reaction/Substitution reaction
4. Double displacement reaction/Metathesis reaction
5. Oxidation and Reduction reaction
6. Endothermic and Exothermic reactions

(1) COMBINATION REACTION
The reaction in which two or more substances combine to form a single new substance are called combination or synthesis reaction.
C(s) + O2(g) → CO2(g)

Combination reactions are of three common types:
(a) Combination of two elements to form a compound. 
Example:

  • H2(g) + Cl2(g) Types of Chemical Reactions Class 10 Notes | EduRev 2HCl(g)
  • 2H2(g) + O2(g) → 2H2O(l)

(b) Combination of an element and a compound to form a new compound:-
Example:

  • 2SO2(g) + O2(g) → 2SO3(g)

(c) Combination of two compounds to form a new compound:-
Example:

  • NH3(g) + HCl(g) → NH4Cl(g)

(2) DECOMPOSITION REACTION
The reaction in which a single compound breaks up into two or more simpler substances are known as Decomposition reaction. The decomposition reaction generally takes place when energy in some forms such as heat, electricity or light is supplied to the reactants.
(a) Decomposition reactions by heat (Thermal decomposition):

The decomposition of a compound with light is called Photolysis.
Note:
1. All the decomposition reaction requires energy i.e. these reactions are Endothermic reactions. These reactions are used in Extraction of metals.
2. A decomposition reaction is called the opposite of combination reaction. This can be supported by the following reactions:

(4) DOUBLE DISPLACEMENT REACTIONS
The reactions in which two compounds react to form two different compounds by mutual exchange of ions are called double displacement reactions. These reactions are also called a Metathesis reaction.

Two common types of double displacement reactions are: 
(a) Precipitation reaction: Any reaction that produces a precipitate, (the insoluble substance formed), is called precipitation reaction. e.g.-

(5) OXIDATION AND REDUCTION REACTIONS (Redox Reaction)

Oxidation:

  • The addition of oxygen to an element or compound
      Types of Chemical Reactions Class 10 Notes | EduRev
  • Removal of hydrogen from a compound is known as oxidation.
          Types of Chemical Reactions Class 10 Notes | EduRev

Reduction:

  • The addition of hydrogen to an element or compound
           H2 + O2 → 2H2O
  • Removal of oxygen from a compound.
           Types of Chemical Reactions Class 10 Notes | EduRev 

Oxidising agent: The substance which gives oxygen or removes hydrogen for oxidation is called oxidising agent and the substance which gains oxygen during reaction is said to be oxidised.

Reducing agent: The substance which gives hydrogen or removes oxygen for reduction is called the reducing agent. The substance which gains, hydrogen during reaction is said to be reduced.

Types of Chemical Reactions Class 10 Notes | EduRev

Fig: Electron movement in Oxidising and Reducing agent

Those reactions in which oxidation and reduction (both) occur simultaneously are called Redox reactionsIn the name Redox, the term 'red' stands for reduction and 'ox' stands for oxidation. 
Ques:  
Types of Chemical Reactions Class 10 Notes | EduRev
Ans: 

  • SO2 is reduced to sulfur, so it is oxidising agent.
  • H2S is oxidized to sulphur, so it is a reducing agent.

It should be noted that substance which undergoes oxidation acts as reducing agent whereas the substance undergoes reduction act as oxidising agent.

There is another concept of oxidation and reduction in terms of metals and nonmetals:
(i) The addition of nonmetallic element (or removal of metallic element) is called Oxidation.
(ii) The addition of metallic element (or removal of nonmetallic element) is called Reduction.

Ques: A shiny brown colored element 'X' on heating in the air becomes black in colour. Name the element 'X' and the black coloured compound formed.
Ans: An element of heating in air changes in its oxide. The brownish element which forms black oxide is copper

Name of the element is Copper (Cu)
Name of black compound: Copper(II) oxide, (CuO)

(6) ENDOTHERMIC AND EXOTHERMIC REACTIONS
Endothermic Reactions: The endothermic process is a term that describes a reaction where the system absorbs the energy from its surrounding in the form of heat.

  • Examples - Photosynthesis, Evaporating liquids, Melting ice, Dry ice, Alkanes cracking, Thermal decomposition, Ammonium chloride in water and much more.

Exothermic Reactions: The exothermic reaction is the opposite of an endothermic reaction. It releases energy by light or heat to its surrounding.

  • Examples - Neutralization, burning a substance, reactions of fuels, deposition of dry ice, respiration, solution of sulfuric acid into water and much more.

Difference Between Endothermic and Exothermic Reactions:

Endothermic ReactionExothermic Reaction
A reaction that the system absorbs energy from its surrounding in the form of heat.A reaction that releases energy from the system in the form of heat.
The energy is absorbed from the surround into the reactionThe energy is released from the system to its environment.
Energy in the form of heatEnergy is released as heat, electricity, light or sound.
Melting ice, evaporation, cooking, gas molecules, photosynthesis are few examplesRusting iron, settling, chemical bonds, explosions, nuclear fission are a few examples.


ELECTRONIC CONCEPT FOR OXIDATION AND REDUCTION
Oxidation: The loss of an electron by atoms or ions is called Oxidation.

Atom → Cation + electrons
A → An+ + ne-

Atom 'A' loses n electrons to become a positively charged ion An+. It is called a Cation.

Reduction: The gain of an electron by an atom or ion is called reduction.

B + ne- → Bn-

The atom B gains n' electrons to become negatively charged ion Bn-, it is called Anion.

Redox reactions: Oxidation and reduction reactions occur simultaneously and are called as Redox reactions. Only oxidation or only reduction is called half-reaction. 

A + B → A+B- → AB  

Example: Na + Cl → NaCl

In this process, sodium loses one electron and oxidised to Na+, chlorine gains this electron and is reduced to Cl-.
Na → Na+ + e- (loss of an electron is oxidation)
Cl + e- → Cl- (Gain of an electron is reduction)

EFFECTS OF OXIDATION REACTIONS IN EVERYDAY LIFE
Oxidation has a damaging effect on metals as well as on food. The damaging effect of oxidation on metals is studied as corrosion and that on food is studied as rancidity. 
Thus there are two common effects of oxidation reactions areas:
(I) Corrosion of metals
(II) Rancidity of food 

(I) Corrosion of metals:
Corrosion is the process of deterioration of metals as a result of its reaction with air, moisture, and acids. (Present in the environment) surrounding it.

Types of Chemical Reactions Class 10 Notes | EduRevFig: Different conditions of an iron nail rusting

The corrosion causes damage to buildings, bridges, ships and many other articles specially made of iron.

Rust: Iron corrodes readily when exposed to moisture and gets covered with a brown flaky substance called rust.  Types of Chemical Reactions Class 10 Notes | EduRevFig: Rusted ChainsThis is called rusting of iron, Rust is a hydrated iron (III) oxide Fe2O· 2H2O.

Rusting of iron takes place under the following conditions:
(a) Presence of air (or oxygen)
(b) Presence of water (or moisture)
It has been observed that:
1. Presence of impurities in the metal speed up the rusting process. Pure iron does not rust.
2. Presence of electrolytes in water also speeds up the process of rusting
3. The position of the metal in the Electrochemical series determines the extent of corrosion. More the reactivity of the metal, there will be more possibility of the metal getting corroded.

Prevention from Rusting:
Methods used to prevent Rusting of Iron are as follows:

  • Alloying – Since Rusting of Iron is a chemical process that happens because the metal is attaining more stable chemical state, alloying (mixing) the iron with other stable metals or alloys can slow down the process of rusting.
  • Galvanizing – Galvanizing a metal object means to coat the surface of that object with a layer of metallic zinc. Also, it is an inexpensive procedure. In conclusion, it will provide it with protection against rusting.
  • Coating and Painting – Coating the surface of a metal object with a layer of either Paint or Varnish will break the contact between the surface and atmospheric oxygen making it consequently immune to rusting.
  • Humidity Control – Controlling the humidity of the environment is also a solution. Therefore, the chances of the metal object rusting will reduce.

Other examples of Corrosion are:
1. Copper reacts with moist carbon dioxide in the air and slowly loses its shiny brown surface and acquires a green coating of basic copper carbonate
2. Silver articles become black after sometimes when exposed to air because it reacts with sulfur to form a coating of silver sulfide.
3. Lead or stainless steel lose their luster due to corrosion. Unreactive metals such as gold, platinum, palladium, titanium, etc. do not corrode. 

(II) Rancidity of Food:
Fresh foods containing fats and oils smell and taste pleasant but when it remains exposed in air for a long time it's smell and taste changes to unpleasant. It is said that food has become rancid.
OR
It is due to the oxidation of fats and oils, butter, ghee, boiled rice, etc, after prolonged exposure to air i.e. The condition produced by the aerial oxidation of fats and oils in foods marked by unpleasant smell and taste is called rancidity.Types of Chemical Reactions Class 10 Notes | EduRevFig: Rancidity in food products

Prevention of rancidity:
(i) Rancidity can be prevented by adding antioxidants to foods containing fats and oils. Antioxidants are reducing agents so when they are added to food it does not get oxidised easily and hence do not turn rancid. 
The two common antioxidants are:

  • BHA (Butylated Hydroxy Anisole)
  • BHT (Butylated Hydroxy Toluene)

Vitamin-E and vitamin-C (ascorbic acid) are the two antioxidants occurring in natural fats.
(ii) Rancidity can be prevented by packaging fat and oil-containing foods in nitrogen gas.
(iii) It can be retarded by keeping food in the refrigerator.
(iv) It can also be retarded by storing food in airtight containers.
(v) It can be retarded by storing foods away from light.
